Women in Politics and the Public Sphere with Rep. Anna Eskamani [Use Your Voice Series]
I’m excited to have on the show today Anna Eskamani, who is my state representative in the Orlando, Florida, area where I live.
Anna is young, outspoken, and tireless in the work she does for her constituents and for Floridians in general.
I invited her on to have a conversation about what it’s like to run for office as a woman, how she found her voice, how she deals with negative and vocal opponents, and the importance of supporting progressive women running for local offices.
Speaking Truth to Power and the Importance of Language with Karla Manning, PhD [Use Your Voice Series]
Have you had an experience that made it so you couldn’t *not* speak up and use your voice?
It could have been something that happened directly to you or it could have been something you witnessed or learned about.
My guest is Dr. Karla Manning, who had such an experience when she taught in South Africa, which she calls transformative, that led her to be more vocal about injustice and disparities, particularly in education.
This episode is part of our podcast series called Use Your Voice.

Trendsetting, Thought Leadership, and Trusted Circles with Gina Bianchini [Use Your Voice Series]
My guest is Gina Bianchini, the founder of Mighty Networks, which enables people like you (and me!) create and host online communities (and more).
I’ve been a fan of Gina’s since her days as co-founder of Ning and in the past couple of years even more so as Gina has been bold and direct in calling out Facebook for their lack of transparency and accountability around data privacy, misinformation, and disinformation.
We talk trends, leadership, and the importance of having trusted circles.
[Coaching] Identifying a Container for Your Message and Content with Diane Diaz and Brenda Reiss [Thought Leadership Series]
A few weeks ago in episode 184, I talked about the five elements that thought leaders have.
One of these elements is what I call a *container* for their message and content.
In this on-air coaching call, listen in as Speaking Your Brand coach Diane Diaz and one of our clients, Brenda Reiss, talk through the work that Brenda does with her clients and then identify a container for her message and content.
This episode is the final one in our series on thought leadership.
From Hashtag to Podcast to Book: Developing Your Thought Leadership Platform with Elayne Fluker [Thought Leadership Series]
We’ve been talking about thought leadership for the past few episodes - what it means to be a thought leader, what thought leaders have in common, and the importance of having a container/project for your message.
My guest Elayne Fluker has done exactly that - even though she didn’t start out with that plan in mind.
It evolved as she paid attention to what she needed and what she was hearing from her audience and community.

A true value add podcast!!!
I am a podcast junkie and know the difference between fluff and value. Carol consistently gives so much value that I signed up for one of her courses just to give something back. Her course over delivered just like her podcast, wow! Not sure how she does it, but appreciate it, her, and this podcast so much! Speaking Your Brand is a must listen!
